Paradox installations come with online tutorials in both basic interactive Paradox and ObjectPAL. There is a free tutorial for Paradox 8.0 at freeskills.com - just follow the links for course list and then databases.

I am having difficulty in learning the most effeceint way to upgrade from Pdox 7 to Pdox 9. I have utilized the Update.ssl files, but they do not deliver the fdl, rdl, sdl or ldl files. Am I to assume these ALL have to be done manually???, , Please assist in my quest for ease in this upgrade., , Thank you,, cindy

Network updates
Assuming I have 2 computers running Paradox on a shared file (say customers table)and one user adds a new customer, how can I get the other computer to show a updated list (like refresh data)automatically to show real-time customer status? So far had to close table and reopen to reflect true condition - even a "locate value" on second computer ignored new entry made on first computer. Played with post lock etc but no success. I am new to Paradox and at present trying various experiments to see if it will do what I require.

Active X
I have just purchased Paradox 9 Developers Edition. I spend most of my time in Visual Basic so I have many Active X Controls. Paradox is suppose to use Active X Controls but it rejects most of them. And yes I registered them in paradox. The only one that would work was Microsoft's Calendar Control. Why?

Dunno. Need more info, like a version, an example, and an error message., , At the very least, you need to register OCX/ActiveX controls in Paradox itself, in addition to having the appropriate license files/packages., , Can you help us duplicate you troubles? Please pick a common control set., , -- f

Did you run out of hard drive space? Be sure to check the volume that Paradox is on, Windows is on, and your private directory too.

Aliases
I have a project that I made in Paradox 9. I use the distribution program to create a installable program. When I run the program after installing it I get a message telling me that the database file can't be found. It shows a path pointing to the directory where the program was made. How can I get it to look in the target directory where it is installed? Also is it possible to completely hide the runtime GUI., , Thank you, David

Pdox 4 for DOS in Windows ME
I still have some PDOX 4 for DOS apps. While running in WIN95 I first ran a batch file with PARADOX -emk 0 -extk 12000 This prevented GP Faults. I have the same thing going in WIN ME but this time I get a hang-up, after a while, when entering data into a table in coedit mode. This is a new computer with the new operating system, so I have not done anything else in PDOX. Is there anything I should be doing ?

V9 and Legal Size Paper
Hello Group,, , Seeking any advice on why V9 is so flaky still on setting a report for Landscape and Legal. I gave up on V8 because code that worked well in V7 to print a report Landscape, failed in V8. There were alleged workarounds, but I just stayed with V7., , At my last installation V9 worked fine with HP 4050 and an HP inkjet., , Now I am at a new installation and the code is failing to set Legal size on an HP 695, an HP 1100A and a Minolta Digital Copier Printer. There is always a new wrinkle. Very very frustrating. V9 code is failing from Win98, WinNT and Win2000 machines., , Why is it so tough to for Corel to solve this problem? Any code secrets?

What version of Paradox? I encountered this problem in 7-32: when a memo field is broken across a page in a report, no part of it prints. I don't remember any fix for this. I work around it by breaking my memo data into lines stored into an A255 field in a child table. Pain in the * but have found no other way., , -Al.
